Our latest project....

Eric and I are both working full time and going to school full time...So this was our project at night after work and school when we would get home early enough and on our weekends. I was mostly the errand runner and tool girl, I helped with the varnishing but Eric did all the labor and deserves ALL credit!! Thanks dad who came up one Saturday to work with Eric and get the roofing on. That made it go even quicker and let me have a nice morning off :)

I thought this was going to take FOREVER, but thanks to an ingenious husband who doesn't mess around, but finishes what he starts, we got this baby done FAST! I knew I was marrying one amazing man when I married Eric, but who would have known he was going to have the handyman quality I always wanted in a husband!

Just so you know, the large beams were these big pieces of junkie wood in our yard that Eric and his brother Jared planed down to the right sizes and made look oh so beautiful! Oh, and Eric thought this all up by himself, he drew up plans, figured out what we needed, and did it! Eric, you Rock my world and totally impress me!

Ok, look, I really don't know if I can hang out with you anymore because of all if these home improvement type moves you have been doing makes me feel a little inferior, I swear you B.C. boys just don't know when to stop! The porch looks like in my own words " a yoked up mother flippen bad ace shiz rockin protein drikin bench pressin swank havin ordeal!" Nice!
